Your simple living home is all about your calm and comfort.
At first glance - this picture comforts.
It welcomes you home and the blood pressure drops at least by 30 points.
The Christmas season brings to mind memories, fireplaces and relaxation.
No matter where you may live your simple home can instill a tranquil charm with decor that transforms a home into your cozy haven far from the maddening world. It is a place that beckons you to come in, relax and unwind as your enter the door.
Minimal furniture and personal choices in pictures and decor need not bust the budget. Once you realize the money that can be saved by shopping flea market venues and recreating thrift store finds, you will be hooked and wonder why you did not begin this lifestyle sooner.
For me, walking into our living room and being met with the scene of a bucket of firewood sitting in the corner, old lanterns on the mantle, pine cones filling an oversized basket and dried flowers hanging from the loft, brings a smile to my face.
You may not live where you have the opportunity to experience the daily "fresh" smell of the forest, but you can live simply, rid yourself of all the "stuff," use your money wisely and bring more calm, peace and contentment into your life wherever you call home.
Relax, you are home!
Don't get caught up in the "must have's" in life. Enjoy what you do have.
Is it a want or a need? You must decide.
Let what surrounds you fill you with calm. THAT is the simple life.
Oh, and if you come out to visit,
please silence that cell phone.
